Ryan Rundown: Speaker faces primary challenge

In this week's Ryan Rundown: House Speaker Paul Ryan continues to dodge speculation that he could win his party's presidential nomination at a contested convention, and the Janesville Republican is facing a primary race with a Delavan businessman critical of his performance in Congress.

Also, the presidential candidates arrive in Ryan's hometown to stump ahead of the April 5 primary, and some target the speaker with campaign commentary.
